Dallas-based AT&T Tuesday announced David Lewis as president of AT&T Michigan. He has worked with AT&T’s external, government, and public affairs efforts for nearly 10 years.

Lewis, a native of Indianapolis, began with the company in 2009 at AT&T in Indiana, where he served as the director of external and corporate affairs. He has also been on the board of directors for the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, the United Way of Central Indiana, the Hispanic Business Council, Fort Wayne Urban League, and the NAACP state education committee.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have someone of David’s background and professional experience leading our team in Michigan,” says Paul La Schiazza, AT&T North Central Region president. “Michigan has an impressive track record of implementing forward-thinking public policy when it comes to communications and technology, and I am confident that David’s leadership will continue to position AT&T as a leader in this effort.”

Lewis has a Master of Public Affairs from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and received his undergraduate degree from Ball State University. He began his career in public service as an Indiana governor’s fellow. Following this, he worked for the Indiana Department of Commerce in the Community Development Division, and then joined the Office of Lieutenant Governor as special assistant for legislative affairs.

In 2001, Lewis began serving as regional director for central Indiana for U.S. Senator Evan Bayh’s office. In 2003, he was appointed Indiana’s clerk of the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and Tax Court, making him the fourth African American in Indiana’s history to serve as a state-wide elected official and the second as clerk.

“AT&T’s reputation around the State Capitol and in communities across Michigan is strong, and the work we are doing is bringing greater investment and innovation to benefit everyone,” says Lewis. “I am excited, honored, and eager to lead the AT&T Michigan team and to make Michigan my new home.”

AT&T has more than 6,000 employees working and 13,000 retirees living in Michigan. Between 2014 and 2016, the company invested more than $1.4 billion in its wired and wireless networks in Michigan. The company has TV customers in the U.S. and 11 Latin American countries.
